Words of whisky:
I enjoyed nosing this Macallan 15yo Fine Oak, but the oak dominates the palate a bit and the finish leaves something to be desired. All in all a decent whisky though.
Fresh with lots of orchard fruits. Nectarines, pears and honey glazed apples as well as red apple peel. Also butterscotch, saw dust and dried grass. Has a dusty quality too.
Vibrant oak, giving it a slight bitterness, with plenty of spices (cinnamon, nutmeg). A bit sweeter now with vanilla and a hint of fudge. The oily mouthfeel is pleasant, but it's too bad there's not much of the fruitiness left that I found in the nose.
Sweet, drying and short to medium in length.
